The Emergency Services Show 2018

Felgains demonstrated the Raizer 2 Emergency Lifting Chair at The Emergency Services Show, taking place at the NEC, Birmingham, 19-20 September. No other event in the UK offers the same opportunities to see and try all the latest equipment, learn new techniques, share best practice and interact with colleagues from across the entire emergency services community.

College of Paramedics Workshops

Popular 30-minute College of Paramedics workshops will cover paramedic prescribing, mental health, working in a custody setting, human factors, maternity, caring for victims of rape and sexual assault and emergency surgical airway procedures. No pre-booking is required and all those attending will be provided with CPD certificates.

Free CPD-Seminars

Seminars take place in four separate theatres – Lessons Learnt (sponsored by UCLan PROTECT), Collaboration (incorporating an International Collaboration Forum sponsored by the Resilience Advisors Network), Health & Wellbeing, and Technology (sponsored by Excelerate). All the seminars are free-to-attend and CPD accredited.

The Manchester Arena attack, Thailand cave rescue, Greater Manchester’s wildfires and corrosive substance attacks are among recent incidents featuring in the Lessons Learnt Theatre.

An exciting programme of seminars focusing on collaboration between the emergency services has been developed in partnership with the Resilience Advisors Network and the Emergency Services Collaboration Working Group.

The Health & Wellbeing seminar theatre will address the health, safety and psychological needs of all those involved in emergency response, including call centre staff. Speakers will include emergency responders who have experienced mental health challenges such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, (PTSD), clinicians, academics and organisations who are implementing change and offering support.

New for 2018, the Technology Theatre features a programme of seminars of interest to all those involved in the specification, procurement, development, application and roll-out of data, video and voice communications.

Live Demonstrations

Elsewhere on the exhibition floor West Midlands Fire Service will be hosting an Extrication and Trauma Challenge with a spectator area, full commentary and sixteen live action cameras feeding to a giant screen. Competing teams from UK fire and rescue services will carry out extrications from simulated crash scenes. In the First Aid & Trauma Challenge, competing teams will experience visual and audio from an incident that has been set up and filmed specifically for the scenario, which takes place in an Educational Immersive Tent.

Collaboration Zone

In the networking hub of the show, The Collaboration Zone, over 80 emergency services, voluntary groups, charities and NGOs will be sharing details of the support they offer, while members of other partner agencies will be available to discuss co-response and other areas of partnership working.
